I am reading an amazing AND disturbing book. Again.
I have been heeding the words of my teacher, Robert S. Hartman, that to fight evil, you need to know evil, intimately. Be able to recognize it everywhere… in yourself and in others.
Like yourself, I prefer to look at pretty, beautiful, harmonious, happy… But if you want to tell the truth, there is not much of that, at least where humans are involved.
Even the best actions a human makes is all about them… all about desire to receive for the self alone. Their reputation, their station in the world, them feeling good about themselves at the expense of another.
I also can’t avoid feeling it… I am an empath. No matter where I go, no matter where I look, some horrid inner turmoil of some person, wholly unrelated to what I am doing, is taking over my body. Ugh.
Desire to receive for the self alone feels like a turmoil, a rift between your two selves.
There are the people to whom I have to connect, my clients and my students. Continue reading “Why does the future of the planet look the way it looks? Bad…”

Desire and ITCH are largely the same state… neither can be fulfilled, neither allow you to be happy… ever.
I speak about this in quora.com
How do you get rid of a desire? You can only suppress a desire for so long. How can I search and destroy the root of the problem?
To begin: the question shows that you have a desire to be desire-less… as far as “bad for you” desires go… very funny.
There are no desires that are good for you.
Continue reading “Desire trap… or how desire takes you out of the present moment.”
Everyone says that, everyone gains hope from it… But few actually know what the heck they are talking about.
Most people want to create stuff, or love, or a thin body, or riches, a prosperous business without doing the work it takes.
They make collages. They talk in the mirror. They create mind-movies, blah blah blah.
Many go to energy practitioners or healers… because their creation method doesn’t work… they believe they have abundance blockages, or maybe energetic strings, or whatever people can dream up and sell on the bazaar of the interweb…
But few if any address the real issue.
You create your own reality with the context. Good reality, bad reality, you create both. Boring reality? yep… you create it with the context. Continue reading “Context is decisive. And yet 99% of humans cannot wrap their minds around the context.”
- I want this to be different than it is
- I want to feel different than I am feeling
- I want to be treated differently than I am being treated
- I want to have more money
- I want to do more interesting things
- I want to have some skills
- I want I want I want
What is underneath that wanting?
For one, a sky high desire number. Maybe even a desire trap. Coupled with a low, weak, tepid ambition number.
Holiday times are especially trapping… I can even feel it myself.
Desire, by its unrealistic nature, robs you of the energy to bring what you desire about.
Why? How? Continue reading “I want I want I want… holiday weeks malady”
The most re-tweeted article on my sites is about attracting money. The number two is about the dark side.

My students, like popcorn, are starting to pop at the same time. It is hard to say what made each pop… especially if your vocabulary (distinction) is not keeping up with the richness of the invisible reality.
What do I mean?
I have been intrigued with the idea of helping people to be intrinsically motivated, ever since I read and re-read Deci’s book: Why we do what we do.
Without words one can be the best at something, but will never be able to teach it… Continue reading “The secret of happy producers… NOT what time they get up in the morning, or how many books they read…”
These should be frequently asked questions, and yet no one asks these questions, as a rule
I am continuing the practice of giving free strategy sessions to people who buy the Starting Point Measurements.
It’s work for me. It’s hard on my body having to be with their resistance, fear, or whatever they are feeling. It’s often talking to people whom, in normal circumstances, I would avoid. Why? Because they are argumentative, because they are often hostile, and because only one in 13 knows that I am an empath, what is an empath, and how I got to the measurements I got to. So they never did any work on knowing what they are paying for.
So, it’s hard. And yet. Sitting in my ivory tower is not useful any more.
Each person brings something to light I would not have otherwise seen.
For example a person yesterday. Soul correction “Finish What You Start”… I have other people with this soul correction, and they are argumentative. But I never realized that this is part of this soul correction. Arguing is a type of resistance: you block input and you put yourself in control… I don’t do well with people who argue. They, intentionally, put me on the defensive, and I have nothing to defend…
So for this learning I am grateful. I don’t work well with this type of soul correction… with this type of attitude.
The second thing I learned from this person is through a question he asked:
How come that I am still doing so poorly after I have invested so much into spiritual teaching?
Continue reading “You have invested so much into spiritual teaching!”
Desire vs ambition. What is the difference? Which one should you have?
For most people words mean something… approximately. Their life reflects this unclarity. Clarity is one of the most important determinants of one’s life… this is why I measure it in the starting point measurements.
I watched a guy who until his clarity went up to 3500, he was miserable.
Most people I measure have a clarity of 200-400. Puny at best, sh*tty life. Guaranteed.
Ok, desire and ambition. Let’s agree what the words mean… energetically.
Desire is 100% desire to receive for the self alone. Wanting something for yourself but not being willing, not even considering doing work to get it. If someone else has what you want, you envy it, you are jealous of them… but to match the work they did… hell no.
Ambition, on the other hand is a willingness to work, to sweat, to do for one’s own fulfillment. The higher your ambition the more you can accomplish the faster.
Desire takes the energy away from ambition… Continue reading “High desire… it must be a good thing, right?”
Every generation is more entitled than the previous one. Why? Let me explain…
If appreciative is the opposite of entitled… does that mean that all those people who are not appreciative are entitled?
Entitled is a worldview. It is a ground-of-being phenomenon, invisible, like the floor. An unexamined truth. To you. But for the other, it is quite obvious…
So how do you know that you are not appreciative? that you are entitled?
This is how:
- Even when you thank someone, they frown…
- You may even be diligent in thanking someone, you may even feel a stab of thankfulness, but those thanks are the waves on the waters, not the bottom of the sea… The bottom of your sea is entitlement.
Continue reading “What is the opposite of entitled?”
I have one student who actually is doing the work the way the work was meant to be done.
It sounds meager… but it is all I ever wanted… really.
If you have one student who actually does what you teach, you can tell if what you teach works or not. Or tweak what you teach to accommodate the difficulties they experience. And watch if the changes you made will make the results match what you intended to accomplish.
What do the rest of the people do? I mean the students in the same program? I am not sure. Apple polishing? Feeble attempts to fake me?
Humans live this fake, apple polishing lives, thinking that life should respond to their feeble attempts, to their intention, to their desire, or whatever the heck they were taught should change reality to what they want reality to be.
This, humanity, humans, include the millions of writers who dish out advice… Continue reading “The Enchanted Forest, Fairy Tales, and how to start living like a person”
